Report: Giant Squid Attacked Ocean Racers
Compiled by Outside Online
January 16, 2003 A giant squid reportedly clamped onto the boat of renowned French sailor Olivier de Kersauson as he raced westward across the Atlantic in an attempt to set a new round-the-world record and recapture the Jules Verne Trophy.

According to an article today by the BBC, the squid, which de Kersauson estimated to be over 22 feet long, wrapped around the bottom his 110-foot carbon-fiber trimaran, Geronimo, on Sunday as he and his crew sailed off the Madeira Islands southwest of the Straits of Gibraltar.
"I saw a tentacle through a porthole," de Kersauson told the BBC from Geronimo. "It was thicker than my leg and it was really pulling the boat hard."

The squid, which de Kersauson said was blocking the rudder, released its hold after he stopped the boat. "We didn't have anything to scare off this beast, so I don't know what we would have done if it hadn't let go," the BBC quoted de Kersauson as saying. "We weren't going to attack it with our penknives."

Little is known about giant squids (Architeuthis dux), as scientists have never had the opportunity to study a live specimen. They are believed to live deep in the ocean and grow to almost 60 feet and weigh nearly a ton. Sightings of live giant squids are extremely rare.

De Kersauson, 58, is attempting to recapture the Jules Verne Trophy, awarded to the boat that completes history's fastest nonstop, unassisted global circumnavigation. His 1997 record of 71 days and 14 hours fell last May when Frenchman Bruno Peyron skippered Orange around the world in 64 days, 8 hours, and 37 minutes
